Am I the only one that can't cancel any interviews? Seems weird considering the cancellation period is open.

Agreed. I wouldn't have had anything close to this opportunity at my old school!

Also, slightly paranoid about the post on the last page. We didnt have any events today did we?

Nah no events today- had no clue what that was in reference to either.

Orientation the 12th, PIE the 12th and then the show begins...

That's really good to hear. When did you submit an application and get off the list?

Yep! I submitted around July 15 I think and was off the list the next day. Just make sure you write that you are willing to take an alternate assignment if they don't have the unit of your choice. Hopefully there are still spots left!

Thanks

Ah, gotcha. I think that's actually what you went to the night of the 6th. If thats what I think it is, I noticed it in a email a couple weeks ago and emailed OCS and she said it was a typo.

Even more pathetic question: How do we find our NYU ID numbers?

Anyone know where we can view courses? Bidding opens tomorrow, and apparently we are supposed to bookmark courses before bidding, but I can't figure out how to see any of them since we can't log into ABRA.

Was under the impression not until 1:30 or so and it will happen while we are at orientation.

A note on that....pretty stressful to have this orientation when we need to be EIW prepping...?

Ok thank you! And yeah, it is pretty stressful, but I keep telling myself I would much rather be stressing at NYU than staying at my old school lol.

On another note, I don't see a dress code for orientation on any of the MANY emails we have received. How are you guys planning to dress? Do you think this a casual thing?

I think it's registration for school.

I wish we could do this transfer orientation stuff after OCI.
